What is the proper way to register assets e.g. hardware (computers)? I created supplier invoice and bought the Computers but Fixed Asset Account show zero. So it just debited to Expenses and Credited Cash. I am also expecting something like crediting Expenses and debit Fixed Assets but not sure why it is not happened automatically. Any help?

The process should be something like this: Enter the Supplier Invoice and assign an asset category (you will need to install account_asset). Change the proposed expense account to the corresponding asset account. This will debit the asset account and credit the supplier account.

When you validate the invoice, an asset will be created in the asset module with the default values of the asset category you chose in the invoice. This will allow you to account for the depreciation of that asset.
